's running for governor and running in virginia like he's running for sheriff." this morning, the president's super pac has put out the first ad tied to romney's infamous video comments. >> behind these doors, mitt romney calls half the american people -- >> dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims. >> victims? behind these doors middle class families struggle and romney will make things even tougher. >> the president jumped on romney's comments in new york during an interview with the late show's david letter marn la doing his best to underline the contrast. >> i don't know what he was referring to but i can tell you this. when i won in 2008, 47% of the american people voted for john mccain. they didn't vote for me. one of the things i've learned, as president, is you represent the entire country. i promise you, there are not a lot of people out there who think they're victims. there are not a lot of people who think they're entitled to something. what i think the majority of people, democrats and republicans, believe is that we've got some obligations to each other and
in the country. massachusetts and virginia. polling just keeps coming out of massachusetts. democrat elizabeth warren has a small lead in 3 out of 4 recent polls. the fourth gave the edge to republican senator scott brown. last night the two squared off in their first senate debate. brown played up his regular guy roots arriving at the debate in his trademark green pick-up truck and attacked warren on character. >> professor warren claimed that she was a native american, a person of color. as you can see, she's not. that being said, she checked the box. >> i believed my mother and my father and my aunts and my uncles and i never asked anybody for any documentation. i don't know any kid who did. >> war didn't her best to saddle brown with the republican brand. brown did everything he could to persuade voters he wasn't really a republican -- or at least a moderate. >> this really may be a race for control of the senate and the supreme court may very well hang in the balance. >> listen, i'm the second most bipartisan in the united states senate, was recently named by washington onmagazine as the
identified the car as a late 199 on acura rl. >>> also today, virginia lawmakers will dig into this summer's unrest at uva. you'll remember school president teresa sullivan was forced to resign in june. that led to weeks of protests until dr. sullivan was reinstated. there will be a town hall meeting tonight in charlottesville to talk about what happened and how to stop it from happening again. >>> pepco's major union is saying no to a labor deal. the ibew local 1900 said members voting by a 5-1 margin reject the offer. pepco called it its last best and final offer. the union called the contract deficient. pepco says it wants to continue negotiating but the union could be headed toward its first strike since 1985. >>> the district's public service commission approved a rate increase that pepco requested, although not all of it. it will raise the average residential bill by about $2.6 on a month. this was a controversial move since people are still mad at pepco for the recent outages which lasted for days. the group one d.c. protested outside the meeting. >> pepco asking the residents of wa

. digging deeper into the battleground states. when virginia delegates cast their ballots at the convention, the vote will be unanimous. the state has voted republican seven times in the last eight elections, except 2008. will president obama take it again or will voters return to the gop? also, a raging wildfire in the hills above los angeles. a live update on what's happening there jon: your election headquarters. taking a look at the key battleground states that could make or break this white house race this time around. today we are looking at virginia. folks in virginia have been reliably republican for a long, long time, except last time around when they voted for president obama in 2008. if you take a look at the stats, virginia, a key prize this time around. oh electoral votes of 13 of them in virginia. the economy looking pretty good right now. that is part of the reason that both campaigns want to claim the state. 5.9% unemployment in virginia. much better than the national average. in terms of the history, president obama has been there seven times. this campaign season, mitt rom
are going up. in virginia, the key to virginia for romney would be to widen the margin they would get. mccain carried them by over 30 points. so did romney. it is basically about the same margin as mccain got in 2008. we see this burgeoning white college graduate group that obama lost by about 11. in 2008. the is basically about even. it makes it difficult for romney to put together a coalition that could put this. colorado has been closed. obama looks like he has a three or four. lead. -- thre or four point lead. it does not appear that romney is able to turn that demographic in his favor. he is not doing much better according to the polls i have seen. he has made some progress outside the margin. he is not making nearly enough progress to take the state. if you break it down to a graphically comment the denver metro area is about half of the state. the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it can shift is the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of the not as far as he did in 2008. this is a little cut off here. you can see an incredible increase
battleground states deciding the election. ohio, florida, virginia, colorado, iowa, wisconsin, north carolina, nevada, new hampshire. bad news for mitt romney, he doesn't lead in a single one. at best within the poll's margin of error. at worst, trails by eight points. this morning, how the nine states stack up. we said it again and again. the president's job approval rating may be the best indicator of where the bout may be. where it is more than 50, the president favored to win. iowa, florida, new hampshire, ohio, virginia, his approval rating below that, 47 or 48 in four. colorado, nevada, north carolina, wisconsin. here is a second way to breakdown the numbers. romney struggled with favorability number all year. that number underwater, more voters have unfavorable than favorable view in six states. romney is in positive territory in just three. florida, north carolina, virginia. finally, a third bucket of looking at these numbers in the extent of romney's problems. for months, romney led on who could better handle the economy. in four more, he trails the president. colorado, iowa, new ham
, the state is virginia. it is the third time this week they have held two rallies in the same state. yesterday it was in ohio. today they jumped in areas their parties lost in 2008. the president was in virginia beach which senator john mccain won by 1,000 votes. governor mitt romney spoke to veterans in northern virginia where president obama easily beat senator john mccain. the 13 electoral votes virginia used to be a sure thing. that changed four years ago with president obama the first hopeful to win that state in 40 years from the democrats. the latest polls give the president a slight edge. the real clear politics average has him leading governor romney by 4.5 points. most rates show the race in the margin of error. john roberts is live in springfield, virginia. john, governor romney today focused on the military and veterans in that area. >>reporter: he is working hard to put this back into the red column, talking to a group at the men legion post today. he told them about the potential effect of defense cuts in the looming sequestration saying it could result in the loss of

have any poll numbers in it that doesn't talk about florida, that doesn't talk about virginia, that doesn't talk about ohio, i think it's proof of this campaign is in trouble also that mention of the word significantly that things haven't changed significantly. i think that word in itself suggests that things have sort of changed in the is sense that they are gelled in a lot of these variables in this campaign are locked in place and locked in place against mitt romney. >> well, patricia, clearly when you get those kind of polls and they don't have florida and other things in it nia-malika is raising, fact checking doesn't matter but why do states matter? when you look at the cnn poll, when they raise a question, who do you think will win, 59% think president obama will win and 37% says romney when you raise a question of who connects better to middle class and women, more in touch with problems faces the middle class, 57 to 37. these are significant gaps in these areas. if you add this to that bounce, does this look real to you? >> well, you know what, that cnn poll is so imp
they do it by occupying the printing press of the local southern newspaper, the conservator in virginia for example, the editor was carefully setting the type to his newspaper one day and i think an early 1862 barges the first minnesota and this side not to undo all his work for the other three said the paper exists with one page of sort of local news and three pages of news for minnesota news and other places they actually traveled with portable printing presses there exclusively almost exclusively enlisted ideas in the world. those aren't censored either and they are not censored officially. they are also not in the sense if you are writing a letter to your mom on some things i would want to know if my son didn't have a decent meal in two weeks. well, when you are writing for other soldiers they know all that stuff and so there is no need to soften the edges a little bit, so they are especially and censored because of the amended the audience with the almost ralf voice and it's hard to imagine anything like that today. it's not like stars and stripes in world war ii which goes through

, in virginia he is doing all right. this is similar to what the president's numbers are in virginia. is this -- can we move that? can he flip that? >> i think independent voters in virginia with quite different from independent voters in ohio. in ohio it's trending so favorably for the president right now that people are even considering taking it off the swing state list. but in virginia you done have the independent auto workers. it's very rural -- it's a different -- >> jennifer: it is a different dynamic. after this week, guys. the question we had last night because these polls are trending very much in the president's favor. is there anything that can shake this momentum that the president has? can romney stop this trajectory from happening? >> absolutely. i think the first debate is key. the first debate is the only one that matters, and this will be the first time we have seen these guys next to each other, and for the people who are undecided or wobbly that's a key moment. >> jennifer: you agree? >> i agree. >> jennifer: anything else external that right hap
three states in the new south, north carolina, virginia and florida. the six days in the midwest rust belt area are much more heavily white than these other swing states. they are much more slowly changing than the states, for example, in the new south which have a much higher level of minority voters and are changing rapidly. and, of course, the states in the southwest with a minority population particularly among hispanics is shooting up very rapidly and the states have a much more higher proportion of minority voters that are favorable to barack obama. with that in mind let's look at some of the particular swing states that are in play at this point. maybe more so than any other state, ohio seems to be the fulcrum of this election, that it's a state that is very accessible to mitt romney, a state of that obama could hold him and he holds all six of the states in the rust belt midwest area combined with only four electoral states short of victory. so critical for the romney strategy to hold a state of ohio. that's not happening at this point. at this point obama is probably up to ab
, virginia, to the american legion. and, no, he is still not apparently able to say anything about the war directly, but at least today where you saw him there, he did mention that this war has produced an outcome of war. which is american war veterans. neither the war nor its veterans were mentioned, of course, in mr. romney's speech to the nation upon becoming his party's nominee for president. he's trying to fix the veterans part of that oversight. he really as a candidate still seems incapable of talking about the war he would be taking over as commander in chief. there were these dueling appearances in virginia before military heavy audiences in that military heavy state. president obama talking about ending the war in iraq, talking about his strategy in afghanistan. president obama released a two minute tv ad today. sort of his closing argument for his campaign. in the two-minute ad he talks about what the country should do with the savings that we will obtain when we eventually end the war in afghanistan. but while mr. romney did mention veterans in his virginia speech today, he did
in the midwest area, ohio, michigan, and ohio, states in the southwest, colorado, new mexico and nevada. virginia and florida in the south. all of the states are pretty different. the six states in the midwest are much more heavy and have a slow level of demographic change and they are more bechler changing slowly. that is favorable in showing preference for barack obama could with that in mind, let's look at some of the particular swing states that are in play. more than any other state, perhaps ohio is one of the pogroms. a state that was believed to be for mitt romney, but if obama holds all six electoral votes, he is only four electoral votes short of victory. critical romney strategy in the state of ohio. that is not happening at this point. at this point, some of the data on the bottom, you see that the were served with the white working class and he lost by 10 points in 2008. his hope was that he could expend that much a part of it. that is really what romney strategy is. romney is not anywhere close to driving up that margin. he is doing no better at all for white college graduates. that
. it's in the low 50s throughout the region including west virginia and virginia. by noontime, into the 70s, near 80 by afternoon. here is the four-day forecast. more of the same on friday. maybe >>> and that's your latest weather. matt? >> al, thank you. >>> apple's much awaited new iphone is finally here. the lightest and thinnest ever, but is it everything users were hoping for? jon fortt is in an apple store in palo alto, california. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, matt. shoppers have more high-end smartphone choices than ever this fall with new phones launching from google and samsung in the past month. but yesterday, it was apple's turn. >> we're going to introduce iphone 5. >> reporter: after weeks of anticipati anticipation, speculation, and hype, here it is. >> it is an absolute jewel. >> reporter: apple's new smartphone, the iphone 5, lighter, thinner, taller, than previous versions. >> we've updated every aspect of iphone 5. everything has been enhanced, reengineered, redesigned over iphone 4s. >> reporter: the phone is apple's first with 4g-lte, and a bran
, florida, ohio, and virginia. excuse me, three states. did so many, wisconsin, new hampshire. those are fundamentally favorable electrodynamics. i'm going to walk through the specifics in each of these. to designate president obama won florida by a grand total of 237,000. obama one ohio by a grand total of two ordered 50,000. pennsylvania was kind of a wipeout. carried by president obama by $620,000. wisconsin, smaller state and ohio, smallest it and florida, bigger vote margin. the census was carried by 410,000 votes for president obama. new hampshire win for obama by 68,000. a smaller number, but smaller state. fewer votes to pick up. i will let for obama by 136,000 votes and colorado went for one by 130,000. i told those up because the total up to about 2 million. for mitt romney to win the presidency he has to change about 0 million mines. he has to take 2 million of those voters in change and million of their minds. actually ferlies do. a very small number. do you realize that the campaign will spend approximately $2 billion on each side, more than $2,000 per vote will be spent
to northern virginia etc. the could be true even if pennsylvania is overwhelmingly democratic because of the more friendly terrain under the circumstances. >> basically what's happened is when i first started coming into politics in the 80's it's always decided by the monsters of the midway. the midwest and the swing states are preponderant the whitewater demographically and heavily blue-collar. now it's emerged in the last eight years to second pathway available to the democrats and previously heavily read state devotee of the set so the same forces that obama himself and bodies, the well-educated and diverse and the kind of southeast conference north carolina, virginia and florida and southwest conference of nevada, colorado and mexico with arizona and georgia kind of beat behind each case. and in the long run, you know, is striking how obama is holding up in the western state into long run though, places like this where the democrats hold the coalition of minorities and college whites and social liberal seem to be more of the future of the party also, again, this election i think o
, ohio and virginia. what's more, huge sums, not only for ads but for get-out-the-vote efforts like mailings and robocalls are going into house and senate races in the fight to control congress. altogether, three billion dollars in campaign cash have been raised so far, and a projected $6 billion by the election, less than seven weeks away. it's not just that we're being hit by swarms of ads thicker than locusts. what's truly frightening is that we don't know who's really paying for them. president barack obama: i'm pledging to cut the deficit -- >>> romney's worth $200 million. >>> the president's doing a mediocre job. >>> governor romney cares about big business. >>> real job growth cut the debt. >>> i had no healthcare. >>> -- to the highest corporate bidders -- >>> if you're a super pac, empowered by the supreme court's citizens united decision to take unlimited donations, you're supposed to make your donors public. and you're not supposed to coordinate your efforts with the candidate. but there are ways to get around both requirements and to hide those campaign mega-dollars. in
virginia casino. they want marylanders to keep coming to west virginia... casinos like theirs. spending one hundred seventy million a year. question seven will keep those dollars at home. with a limited expansion of gaming that will mean... hundreds of millions for schools in the baltimore area... and across the state... according to the department of legislative services. and with independent audits required by law... question seven means millions for maryland schools. guaranteed. chris: welcome back. the big first debate comes on october 3. last week we asked our roundtable what their toughest question would be for president obama. this week's big question, what is your toughest question for mitt romney. bob woodward. >> i would ask, i would say you spent all of these years accumulating all of this money. why, tell us why this personal wealth is so important to you. >> good question. chris: take my breath away. katty kay. >> governor romney, how do you account for the fact that so many americans don't seem to know what you stand for? >> governor romney, many presidents are judged by how t
of his time. for what purpose does the gentleman from virginia seek recognition? >> mr. speaker, i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute and to revise and extend. the speaker pro tempore: without objection, the gentleman from virginia is recognized for one minute. >> mr. speaker, americans continue to look for work, put food on the table and ensure their children have school supplies as fall comes into full swing, yet the house is set to leave washington today with many items on its to-do list. while congress works to finish up to pass a budget to fund the federal government, catastrophic cuts loom on the horizon set to hit january, 2013. mr. wittman: leaving these cuts is unconshenable. it's not the right thing to do. our all-volunteer force is at war and these cuts threaten our national security. furthermore, they threaten over 200,000 jobs in virginia. nine days remain before the new fiscal year begins. congress should do the right thing and stay in washington instead of ignoring the reality and delaying tough decisions. it's time to put governing over politics.
- american representation. >> we will go to mike in virginia beach, republican line, go ahead please. caller: what i found fascinating is everyone in the room wanted to hear a plan, and if romney can go into the debate with a solid plan, there are several who brought up medicare. good paul ryan said, look at what happened to my running mate. we are going to solve the problems, and here is how we are going to do it. >> peter hart is going to get questions from a number of political reporters. let's listen in. >> i am always surprised we spend all of our time talking to voters, and the undecided voters that are still at this point, agonizing, going back and forth. one woman said she was one way and then another convention she was another way. it is hard to understand because most people are decided from birth, and these are people who are at sea. >> i should state that is why i brought them into the room. we know what 90% of americans are, and we could have brought them in, and it would be exactly what we have seen, and i wanted to try to look at that 10%. some people turn out to be a little m
the democratic nomination. speaking in the battleground state of virginia, the president offered a bit of preview of the prime time speech this thursday night. >> on thursday night i will offer what i believe is a better path forward. a path that will create good jobs and strengthen our middle class and grow our economy. >>shepard: the president has blamed the predecessor for getting the economy in the mess that it is and when a school come reporter asked him to grade the performance he gave himself an incomplete. >> what grade to you give yourself? i would say "incomplete." historically after the big financial crises where a lot of people are dealing with debt or a collapse of the housing market, that creates bigger challenges and we are seeing this not just in the united states but around the world. >>shepard: this is not the first time the president is giving himself an incomplete on the economy but with 60 days until the election the republican rivals are pouncing. a fox poll found that 54 percent of voters disapprove of the handling of the economy, and when asked which candidate they trust t
to run ads in ohio, virginia, and florida alone. we'll have more on these stories the the next two hours right here. more now, though, on the last minute cancellation by the romney campaign in colorado. peter alexander joining us now by telephone from pueblo, colorado. the governor was supposed to be speaking in about three hours. >> craig, we are here in denver. we're intending to join the campaign but they gave us a heads-up that the event was canceled. it happened at the result of an experimental plane that crashed earlier this morning where one person was killed and ended up closing two runways. as long as it's under investigation the campaign didn't want to interfere with the emergency response efforts that take place there. clearly that's going to have an impact when a candidate comes into town with all the security he would draw. romney heads off to the state of california, which won't be a competitive state but will speak to a hispanic group. right now he's losing among the latinos and hispanics 2-1. he will follow through the course of this week hitting several battleground stat
york city and then a set of whirlwind stops through ohio, florida, virginia before hitting milwaukee at the end of the week. the first time he's going to wisconsin this election cycle. joining me now, dough sdchlt ominico. he enjoys the occasion al beer, but milwaukee, really? >> maybe, maybe not. it's not just for the beer. milwaukee is an area that president obama has to run up the score to win. with picking paul ryan, it really shouldn't be all that surprising that wisconsin would be close. we've had it in the toss up column the entire time. it was the closest state of the 2004 presidential election just 0.38 percentage points separated john kerry and george w. bush. >> but then 14 points separated president obama and john mccain four years later. what's happened? >> the same 2008. and it looks a whole lot more like 2004. it could be a base election, slightly lower turnout than 2008. we've seen undecided voters say maybe they won't go to the polls. >> the stops next would he be also speaking volumes about money. anytime either one of them goes to this morning or california, it's a
rolled out victories in virginia and kansas and on and on and he was back and john mccain won the the nomination after having been declared gone the previous summer. in the 2008 republican primaries, john mccain was a phoenix that rose from the ashes of the campaign he previously burned down. he came back from somewhere much worse than where romney is right now. at least mitt romney still has his donor billionaires, right? mccain was able to win the nomination. now i should also note that 2008 john mccain also provides us the opposite political science case study of how to burn down your campaign in a way you can't recover from. so he got the nomination, but once he had the nomination and was running for president, the burning down again started this week. it was the third week of september 2008. that was the week that lehman collapsed and the crater of the american economy began. the fundamentals of our economy are strong. it was john mccain who invented the blackberry. then his surrogate said john mccain was not capable of mccain was not capable of running a company like hew
. these are stes in the sun belt, florida, virginia, north carolina, the southeast, corado, new mexico in the southwest that had generally been relelpublican being moved toward the democrats bya combination of more diversity, more minorities and more upscale whites. what's fascining, wolf, is that when this election began it looked like president obama was better positioned in those sun belt swing states because they more reflect his national coalition, but in fact today he's doing better in those rust belt swing states which are more of a headache for romney because the president is simply running better among the bluer older whites who are very prevalent in those states, he's running better in the midwest among theoters than he is anywhere else. >> is that in part because of the car industry? the ao itrye helped bailout gm and chrysler? >> clearly that's part. one, in other parts of the country are evangelical christians very strongly republican les a factor in the midst, but certainly th auto bailout is important. and just the message. at is t case thahey have tried to make tt mitt
